I was feeling a little down late yesterday because I never fit in my planned strength training workout. Then I thought for a moment and realized that I had done all this:
Hand-mowed the lawn - 20 min in hot sun
weeded and picked in garden - "
played hotbox outside with kids - 1/2 hour running/throwing game
swept the entire downstairs and the two outdoor decks
cleaned the bathroom - 1 bathroom, 5 people, you get the picture
went grocery shopping
made an enourmous vegan sauce for big family get together - with garden veggies
walked 1 1/2 miles
hung and later folded two loads of laundry
picked 3 quarts of wild berries
cleaned out the inside of my van (aka the snack mobile)
went swimming twice to cool off from above activities
Oh, yeah and did I mention caring for my 3 kids?
This lifestyle is great in that exercise just happens.
